Post a thought

I remember that Scott Jacoby was a nice young man.


It`s hard to compare actors from different generations.


She played the mother of Richard Kiley`s character in Blue Moon (1999) (TV) in spite of the fact that he was eight months her senior.


An agent for David O. Selznick saw Kim in a stage production at the Pasadena Playhouse and signed her to a seven-year contract. Selznick suggested she change her name to Kim and an RKO secretary suggested the last name of Hunter. A few years later, Irene Mayer Selznick, David`s ex-wife by then, recommended Kim for the role of Stella in A Streetcar Named Desire (1951).
